If you have tons of 1080p/720p HD videos that are in Galaxy S4 unsupported file formats, like HD MKV, AVI, VOB, TiVo, MPG, MXF, MOV, AVCHD, FLV, and F4V, how can you view them on the Galaxy S IV?
Samsung Galaxy S4 features a 5-inch HD Super AMOLED 1,920×1080 display and has got 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9mm. Moreover, the Galaxy S4 has got 441 pixels per inch, higher than other the phones available in the market. And it has got amazing photo shooting abilities thanks to the 13-megapixel camera with Auto Focus and zero shutter lag and a front camera of 2-megapixel, which can record videos in Full HD at 30fps. Samsung has crammed its cameras with a variety of software like Drama Shot, Sound Shot, Cinema Shot, Eraser, Story Album, Beauty Shot and Dual-Shot which works amazingly. It can even shoot 1080p video.
[Q]I currently have a large movie library including 1080p and 720p HD movies in a wide variety of file formats, such as MKV, AVI, VOB, WMV, TiVo, MTS, Flash FLV/F4V and so on. I am buying a Galaxy S4 for my husband this holiday and I am confused on how to get the right product to make my movies playable on the Galaxy S4.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Video/Audio format:
Video Format: MPEG4, H.264, H.263, DivX, DivX3.11, VC-1, VP8, WMV7/8
Audio Format: MP3, AAC/AAC+/eAAC+, WMA, OGG, FLAC, AC-3
I am afraid that uploading and playing AVI, MKV, VOB video files on Samsung Galaxy S IV is not so easy, because the Galaxy S4 video format is limited as other Android devices, it only support few AVI/H.264/MPEG-4 videos. MKV, MOV, MTS, and most AVI videos are not supported by Galaxy S4. Fortunately, we have a great tutorial for you- converting videos before transferring files to Samsung Galaxy S4, to get your AVI/MKV/VOB videos playable on Galaxy S4 without problems.

Step 1: Add your source media files
Install and run the Galaxy S4 Video Converter to your PC, click “Add Video” or “Add from folder” to import your source AVI, MKV, VOB videos. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.
Step 2: Select output format for Samsung Galaxy S4
Choose output profile for Galaxy S4. Here I recommend you “Samsung > Samsung Galaxy S III Video (*.mp4)” which is a format specially designed for Galaxy S3 but also works for the S4.
If you like, you can click on Settings you could easily set bitrate, frame rate, codec, channels, sample rate, etc to adjust parameters that affect video quality and file size for the video you prefer. Keep in mind that bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
